Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book serves as a treatise on the fact that cavemen wore fur pelts and how we as humans never really grew out of that. For fashion historians this book would serve as a wonderful addition to your library; for everyone else, it's a pass. Most of the pictures in the book can be found online or, frankly speaking, are not that interesting.
